Ten Movies Whose Plotlines Would Change By Simply Adding The Word ‘Cheese’ To Their Titles

  1. Top Gun Cheese: A high-adrenaline look into the world of high-profile, expensive blocks of cheese and the butter churners who are the last line of defense between regular old cheese and the exquisite, palate-affecting, culturally-significant cheeses that transform our society. Our protagonist, a maverick of sorts in the cheese world, goes up against the icy cold un-feeling demeanor of a cheese baron from Switzerland and the battle ensues.
  2. Some Kind of Wonderful Cheese: She’s a cheese-leader whose popularity is unrivaled. He’s a loner musician who dreams of someday getting to taste her cheese. Will they ever get together and melt? Not if our loner’s best friend (who secretly loves his cheese for better or worse) is honest about what she feels.
  3. Memento Cheese: He’s got something he’s searching for. An answer to a puzzle that plagues him. Before long, the truth will come out and he will finally realize that it’s his grandmother’s old cheese (a memento of sorts) that holds the secret to his life. But who can he trust and will he ever secure the memento of cheese he seeks?
  4. Alien Cheese: When a broken down spaceship finds themselves marooned on a far away planet, their first goal is to simply get back home. But when they uncover a wheel of alien cheese, everything changes for the worse. Their fates and their survival…are now all in question.
  5. The Shining Cheese: It glows. It shines. It kills. Well, at least it causes people to become insane, then kill, all the result of being subjected to the shining cheese for months on end. A family will struggle to survive as the cheese influences all.
  6. Touch of Evil Cheese: While almost as scary as previously mentioned movies about killer cheese (see Alien Cheese and The Shining Cheese), this film is pure and simple about the touch of evil cheese. Once touched by the evil of the cheese and there’s no turning back. You’ll be evil. Because of the evil cheese. Did I mention there’s no turning back?
  7. The Apartment Cheese: While normal house cheese in one thing, this movie involves the worst kind of cheese around: the apartment cheese. Having sat in a fridge for months on end, the reveal of the apartment cheese will not only affect the lives of all who reside in the apartment complex, but cause hilarity to ensue based on simple miscommunication.
  8. Back to the Future Cheese: A teenage rebel striving for his dream to become a professional cheese-maker uses a time machine to retrieve future versions of cheese so that he can succeed today. But like everyone knows, when you bring future cheese into present day — the entire dairy world can implode upon itself, as it does in this exciting culinary time travel dairy film.
  9. Stand By Me Cheese: A British film that takes place in the poor part of the UK, and follows the stories of a group of down-and-out friends desperate to make a difference. Along the way the four friends will realize that not only does friendship matter the most in life, but so does standing by one’s cheese (as a metaphor). The classic line from this movie, which will most likely be repeated for decades is: “Wot do ya mean, mate? Just stand by me cheese!”
  10. Bringing Up Baby Cheese: A classic from the B&W days, this film stars former President Ronald Reagan as a man who thinks a block of cheese is an actual living, breathing child. Hilarity ensues when his relationship begins to fall apart when his girlfriend feels overshadowed and ignored because of the block of cheese. Sometimes, people need to choose and that’s just what our beloved Republican President will have to do!

    The same could be said for blogs.

    Words Cheese for My Enjoyment
    Boing Cheese Boing Cheese
    Wil Wheaton dot Cheese

    I’m really not sure how that would change the content, but that’s for the smart guys like you to figure out.

    In ‘Top Gun Cheese’, Maverick’s best buddy would be “Gouda” instead of “Goose”.
    Let’s add “Cheese on a Plane” – much tastier and less scary.
    And naturally the epic “Gone with the Cheese” – Scarlett declaring with her hands in a bowl of cheese: “I’ll never go hungry again!”

    When I want something absolutely, absurdly, blatantly ridiculous and more than slightly wacked out, I just have to click on my WFME bookmark and VOILA! I am never disappointed. 😀

    Or for a Mel Brooks spin:

    History of the Cheese World
    Space Cheeseballs
    Young Frankenstein Cheese
    Blazing Cheese Saddles
    The Cheese Producers

    this is, quite simply, total genius.
    on very boring nights while shooting “Survivor,” we’d play this game but using the word “crumpet,” and replacing a word in the movie title (my winning entry: Children of a Lesser Crumpet).
    so i think that adding a word, and that word being CHEESE, is such an improvement…please, let’s continue this category.

    The Cheesefather… I’m going to make you a cheese plate you can’t refuse.

    obviously, this post was inspired by my new tagline.

    i knew you still cared.

    I’d like to add:
    The Philadelphia Cheese Story, in which a struggling writer and photographer pal find themselves at the wedding of a cream cheese empire heiress.

    Cheese: Milk’s leap towards immortality.

    No, Jenny…not “Words Cheese for My Enjoyment”…make that just “Cheese for My Enjoyment”.

  12. Dave2 - August 29, 2006 at 6:44 pm -

    Ooh ooh! I love cheese!

    But you forgot the best cheese movie ever… Field of Dreams and Cheese… which is pretty much self-explanatory. Even baseball dreams are better with cheese on top.

    I am humbled by all the suggestions that only added cheese to previously released film titles. For those who added more than the word cheese (i.e. The Cheesefather) — I am disappointed in you.

    i think Bringing Up Baby Cheese needs to be about swiss.

    i’m just saying. i think it just FLOWS. baby SWISS? get it?

    here’s a few other suggestions because that’s what all the other kids are doing:
    The Breakfast Club Cheese (doesn’t that sound good?)
    My Big Fat Greek Wedding Cheese (it’s got kalamata olives in it)
    Garden State Cheese (is rinsed twice in the river)
    The Way We Were Cheese (it was their Halloween costume)
    What Lies Beneath Cheese (it’s better if you never know)

    so there you go.

    The Phantom Menace Cheese: Obi Won and Qui Gon spend 2 hrs planet hopping trying to discover who is cutting the cheese — Come on, you all know in the Star Wars collection, this movie was a stinker.

  17. Amy - August 30, 2006 at 7:30 pm -

    Don’t forget about “Saw Cheese,” “Say Anything Cheese,” and “Breakfast Club Cheese.”

  18. Kathleen - August 31, 2006 at 9:56 am -

    and then there’s….
    Adventures in Babysitting Cheese
    The Firm Cheese
    The Fugitive Cheese
    Can’t Buy Me Love Cheese
    The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe Cheese

    and the new musical…Spamalot Cheese
